|Who is ready to go? These guys.|
|Rebecca doing what she does best...|
By the time we were making our way down to Kelly Drive for our journey towards the Art Museum, rain started to fall, at first very light, and then very hard. At this point there was about 10 miles to go, and unless you were a pansy, there was no other option than to continue to the end. Last 10 miles are really the hardest. While you do get to enjoy the wonderful River drive running path while watching rowers pull their heavy oars through fog and cold rain, you also get to see the Art Museum which is the finish line - yet you still have 5 miles to go. Bummer. In the grand scheme of things 5 miles are nothing, but when you combine Christmas time shoppers, traffic lights every 50 feet and torrential rain, it makes for a very interesting journey.
